Thursday night rewind



Gibbs 28, St. Petersburg 7

Countryside 13, Palm Harbor University 10 (2 OT)

Prime time teams

Gibbs: Former Lakewood standout Louis Murphy Jr., who went on to win two national titles at Florida and play in the NFL, took over the Gladiators this offseason. After a lopsided loss to the Spartans in the season opener, Gibbs is showing signs of a turnaround. The Gladiators played tough in a 28-20 loss to Robinson last week. On Thursday, Gibbs put it all together, beating St. Petersburg 28-7 for Murphy Jr.’s first win as coach. 

Countryside: It has not always been pretty, but the Cougars are 3-0 for the second time in the past three years. On Thursday, Countryside showed its endurance, outlasting Palm Harbor University in double overtime in win 13-10. Logan Gregory delivered with a game-deciding field goal.

Prime time teams

Calvary Christian: After struggling in the past six matches against quality competition, the Warriors put it all together against their biggest rival, beating Clearwater Central Catholic in five games. Both teams likely will square off again in the district tournament, maybe even in the postseason. 

Carrollwood Day: After a 10-day layoff, the Patriots resumed play with a pair of quality wins this week, the latest coming in five games against always tough Berkeley Prep. 

Hollins: From 2013-16, the Royals won a combined four matches. They have already surpassed that win total after sweeping Northeast on Thursday to get off to one of the best starts in program history. 

Weeki Wachee: The Hornets, who have finished with a winning record in each of the last seven seasons,are off to another solid start. They remain unbeaten (4-0) after sweeping Crystal River on Thursday. During its perfect start, Weeki Wachee has yet to lose a game.
